The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Tuesday, June 20, has released the draft proposal for the delimitation of Assembly and Parliamentary Constituencies for Assam. Under the proposed delimitation, the number of Assembly seats will remain at 126, while the number of Lok Sabha seats will remain at 14. Out of the 126 Assembly seats, 19 seats will be allocated for Scheduled Tribes (STs) and 9 seats for Scheduled Castes (SCs). Similarly, out of the 14 Lok Sabha seats allocated to Assam, 2 seats will be reserved for STs and 1 seat for SCs. The EC has retained Diphu and Kokrajhar parliamentary seats reserved for ST and continued the Lakhimpur Parliamentary seat as unreserved. There will be one unreserved assembly seat in Dhemaji district. Two Parliamentary seats have been proposed for the Barak Valley districts. A parliamentary seat has been named as Kaziranga. The Commission plans to visit Assam again in July 2023 for a public hearing on the draft proposal. Until July 11, 2023, individuals and organizations are invited to submit their suggestions and objections regarding the proposed delimitation.
